Something new: Decoupage artwork :)

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of funky artwork using dictionary pages, music sheets, or vintage magazines as the backdrop for some pretty images, either printed or painted on top. To me there’s something very appealing about combining the written word with drawing or painting, and decided to experiment with something similar, although I haven’t seen anything exactly like this yet! So I guess it’s fair to call it “Something new!”


I do think it’s pretty to have the Hebrew letters showing through the artwork, and it’s terribly fun to do all this cutting, pasting, and painting!


And a couple Chamsas, for good luck :) The large blue words say “Shalom” which means “peace.”

I’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions! Please leave me a comment :)

Love, Dena

    It is different and I really really like it. Especially the “borei pri hagafen” one. I feel it adds more meaning to your themes. Keep it up Dena.
    As I re-look at them, I like the Chamsa’s also. I think this effect “speaks” more to people.

    I am not much of an art connesior but decoupage can be very appealing only if there is an obvious connection to the main work. I imagine it takes a lot more of the artist’s time to do this type of artistry. I love to look at your workand as you know I display four of your pieces here in our home.
    We have the Moroccan girls, two water colors that you did when you were about 13 years old, water colors, a chinese girl, and a mother and her daughter skipping which shows the motion. very good.
    And what every son-in-law thinks of his mother-in-law. Love and kisses to all. Gpa and Gma.
    your pieces here in our home.
